      I am very disturbed by the guy behind the presenters over ba channel. Every video he must "wants to be in the frame". Came on man.

      Molly Baz This is SO SO delish!! I literally make this all of the time now. I double the sauce recipe and put dried cranberry’s and golden raisins. My whole family loves them to. This dish has the perfect balance of flavors and Molly is right, you really can’t taste the anchovies but they are a total must have in this! Side note: you can’t put golden raisins in the microwave, at least when I did they came out as hard as little pebbles, but I just picked them out and still ate the left overs!!

    Just made this, without the dressing. Not so much salt. Effing amazing. And bonus, my 3.5 year old loved the crunchy potatoes. New go-to side.

      If my girl made these for game day, I would buy her a fat diamond for her finger.

        If you want your potatoes crispy, par boil them then let them go cold standing in about quarter inch of cold oil, the water evaporates and they soak up the oil and crisp up really well

          I wish she talked about the recipe as much as she talked about optional anchovies

              I didn’t have any anchovies so I added a splash of fish sauce. All I can say is Amazing! This recipe will go into heavy rotation at my house.

                                                              No raisins. White people have to stop putting raisins in everything. That’s why we never get invited to the BBQ. Also, a whole cup of salt to boil, salt to season and salty anchovies? I’ll cut out the amount of salt in the boiling pan.

After you make it I assure you that in the future you’ll want to put even more filets than the 2 in the recipe

Canine meat is much healthier than starchy empty carbs. Think about it.
